View Full Version : package a binary server and create a user that run it as a daemon

September 22nd, 2009, 08:58 PM

I'm trying to package a server that will run as a daemon on start up. I've read that it is considered a best practice to create a system user that will run it.

I have a folder with library files and scripts that I need to put somewhere without compiling.

In what stage/file do I create the system user?
Does this user need to have permission on the server folder, start script? How do I verify that?
Where on the file system do I put the server folder?
